Why Christian Education?
Welcome to DeMotte Christian School where students receive a quality, Christian education! It has students and teachers, desks and blackboards, and bells and recesses like any other school, but there’s something different about our school.
Our school is a Christian school. When Jesus said, “Follow Me”, He wasn’t just talking about Sundays. Time and time again the Bible tells us that following Jesus is a way of life. We want to help teach that way of life every day in all subjects. But our school is not a protective fishbowl for children. Instead, we intend it to be a total plunge into the study of God’s marvelous world. Yet, when the currents of different beliefs and philosophies swirl around our young ones, we try to help give children the confidence to know where they are going.
Students also receive a quality education. The student to teacher ratio is less than 20 to 1. Each student is recognized as unique. Remediation and enrichment programs are available to meet the needs of our students. Standardized test results show our students averaging in the top quarter of all students tested in the United States.
So, welcome to the DeMotte Christian School community! It is a community in which Christian love and concern are woven in the task of providing quality, Christian education. Learning complements the Christian home and church. Time and talent are regarded as given by God to be used in His service. Our school is not perfect. The power of sin has its effects within the walls of our school, too. But we truly are a Christian school community, rooted in the knowledge that Christ is the Lord of creation and life.
